  1. I have just completed planning and purchasing airline tickets for a month long visit to multiple cities in the US. Using the Internet to do so is a must and can be an exhausting process. If you are looking for the best deals with cheapest prices, things have changed in recent years. It used to be a quick visit to (Oribiz.com, Expedia.com, or Travelocity.com ) would be a great place to compare fares and find a good deal. Then, over time I noticed that sometimes going direct to the actual airline website gave a better deal or other flights that were not advertised. That made the process of getting the best deal a lot of work. There have been many other websites that advertise "cheap tickets". Visiting most of those is even more time consuming and rarely did I find better deals. That all changed when I have discovered two websites that gave significantly different and better information when planning a trip with cheaper airfares. The first one is called Sky Scanner. https://www.skyscanner.com/tips-and-inspiration/best-time-to-book-usa Not only do they give great pricing deals, they have a tool that shows how many weeks in advance to book plus many tools to find the very best deal. I used it extensively and was impressed with the volume and detail information available. We planned many one-way hops and the prices varied greatly. It is now my "go-to" website for getting airfare information, tho I often still book with the actual airline. The second one is called Skip Lagged https://skiplagged.com/ This site has some useful information but is more aimed at a traveler that does not have and checked luggage. Often times airlines will have flights that are multi-stop and are cheaper than direct flights to one of the layover points. I never understood why flying further was less expensive - can't we just pay by the air mile? For example, say you wanted to fly from Atlanta to Denver. The airfare for that direct flight might be more expensive than a flight that goes from Atlanta to Portland, with a layover in Denver. So you could purchase the longer flight to Portland but you would not board the plane for the second leg from Denver to Portland, thereby getting to Denver on a cheaper airfare. This would not work if you had checked luggage since your luggage would go all the way to Portland. On the other hand it provides a useful option for some people. They also give a very interesting graph of airfare prices between now and when you plan to go, helping you see when the cheapest times are to fly. So, if you are planning a flight, I would suggest checking out these two sites. Then book direct with the airline or take the information to your favorite travel agent. I have easily saved almost $1,000 over our extensive trip. I only wish I had learned of these tools earlier.

  12. Have you ever noticed how people behave when they travel? We were on a plane recently and observed many people undo their seat belt (you can hear the click) as soon as the plane is on the ground but still moving toward the terminal. Then up they jump into the aisle preventing other passengers from reaching luggage and not offering help to elder people struggling to reach into those crowded airplane bins. Of course these people wait in the aisle several minutes until the pilot turns off engines, etc.and parks the aircraft. I see these same people waiting for luggage and standing so close to the carousel no one else can see approaching bags. I've never figured out how standing right next to the carousel is a good idea for everyone. Noticed one female who pushed people aside so she could stand close to the carousel, finally she saw and grabbed her small bag, turned to leave but others would not move so she was trapped while people reached over and around her for their luggage. Poor thing was wild eyed after minutes of this activity. There is one airport (maybe in Germany) where a yellow line on the airport floor marks how close passengers are allowed to stand while waiting for luggage. Everyone can spot their bag on the moving belt, step forward, take their possession, and leave. Pretty efficient method. Another scene in Africa was interesting. All luggage was taken off the airplane and dumped in one big pile. Seemed my lonely bag was always at the bottom of the heap. For my safety, I stood back and waited until other passengers had picked through this display. Funny how my luggage was never taken by mistake. Just my observations of airport behavior.
  13. I notice yesterday that there is a new Air Panama office on Main St next to the AirBox office. I am not sure what services they offer as it was close when I was there.
  14. In transferring from one Copa flight to another in Panama City, we found the staff friendly and helpful. All scheduled flights departed on time! Have heard horror stories about navigating through Tocumen, but we experienced none of this. We have traveled from David to PC via Air Panama, but now find Copa a better choice for meeting our needs.
